Dail and Hammar’s Pulmonary Pathology has established itself as the definitive reference in the field. This third edition is now a two-volume, full color text led by Dr. Tomashefksi, as Editor-in-Chief and Drs. Cagle, Farver, and Fraire as Associate Editors. The new editorial board has continued to build upon the excellence Dail and Hammar achieved in the previous editions by reorganizing, expanding and substantially revising the text. This authoritative reference work has been thoroughly updated to cover newly recognized entities and the latest advances in molecular diagnostic techniques. Abundantly illustrated with more than 2000 full color illustrations. This outstanding contribution to pathology literature is a must-have for the library of every surgical and pulmonary pathologist.

Dail and Hammar’s Pulmonary Pathology has set the standard for which all other pathology texts strive to achieve. From stellar reviews of the Second Edition:

"When the first edition of Pulmonary Pathology by David H. Dail and Samuel P. Hammar was published in 1988, it was clear that it was to become the reference book for pulmonary pathology. It was difficult to conceive then that a better book on the subject could be assembled. The second edition of this encyclopedic work proved convincingly that improvement could occur. Indeed, the new revised edition is more complete and better illustrated...I consider this book to be an outstanding contribution to the pathology literature and a must in the library of surgical and pulmonary pathologists." -- Human Pathology
